Buttons and more buttons

Who knew buttons could be so much fun and that they could help produce some very interesting pieces?? I am now hooked on buttons and have a good collection started but, I have decided, you can never have too many or much of anything in the crafty sense!

After creating the house shape for the Fun Weeks Challenge on Cardmaking Paradise (see post titled Textures) I went on to  see what else could be covered in buttons and charms.  AnneC on Cardmaking Paradise forum came up with a lovely pendant she had made by using a diecut shape so I had a look through my dies and cut out the bird shape to make some brooches. Two of them looked nicer, in my opinion, without being painted so only covered one with paint and gold wax.
